SCHOLARSHIP
Art & Design Competition

Art & Design Scholarship

Would you like to win Akademeia’s Art & Design Scholarship?

The competition is open to all students, aged 14-16 years old, who would like to develop their artistic skills and consider studying artistic majors in the future.

  • Art is a very important part of our curriculum.
  • We aim to educate young artists – those interested in the fine arts, future designers, architects, and creators to be. That’s why we are pleased to announce the 3rd annual scholarship competition.

    Please watch a short recap from the 2nd stage of the previous year’s competition!

Award

1. ART & DESIGN SCHOLARSHIP AT AKADEMEIA HIGH SCHOOL 

The scholarship includes the financial provision of total or partial funds to study at our high school.

Project-based learning and the critical development of ideas are at the heart of the Creative & Performing Arts curricula. Students learn to develop their ideas conceptually through research and exploration of a wide range of media and techniques. Workshops and extended projects with leading art and design practitioners and educators strengthen our students’ artistic independence and introduce them to the latest developments in the field. Our A Level curricula in Photography, Fine Art, and 3D Design prepare our students for the most prestigious art, architecture, and design programmes around the world. 

We want our students to develop their creativity, expand their artistic horizons and at the same time learn to talk about their works and inspirations in an interesting and critical manner. Students thinking of careers in fine art, photography, design, architecture or fashion have the opportunity to develop their practice under the guidance of top experts in these fields, many of whom graduated from prestigious artistic universities in the UK.
